During the early morning ours after breaking their Ramadan fast, young Libyan men gather at a Tripoli pier to drift and drag race their cars. In typical Libyan fashion, the over-the-top dragging display destroys the vehicles in favor of reckless showmanship. (Photo by Benjamin Lowy/Getty Reportage)
Conflict photographer Ben Lowy, on a grant from the Magnum Foundation’s Emergency Fund, has spent the last two weeks shooting from Libya on a photojournalism inspired Hipstamatic lens — and posting exclusively to Tumblr. Check out Lowy’s Tumblr and Storyboard’s interview with the photographer.
